Education
Truths
Education's Ten Commandments

A student's Special Intelligence, what they do best,
should be determined and central to their educational efforts.

Equal does not mean the same. Unique treatment using
Individualized Personalized Curriculum essential.

Reading enjoyment is primary for success
students determine what they read and level.1

 World Changed,
Good Jobs Disappeared

Public Education
Must Follow

 

 

Job Polarization has decreased opportunities
for academically educated average High School graduates.

This means Few High-Paying Jobs for those in the middle!

Our best and brightest students struggle
against the world's best and brightest.

Career success requires more work
from academically oriented students and
work experience for skilled oriented students
 

 

4 Implementation
years of change required to Educating the
Class of 2036


Benefits worth the time an effort?

Fight Against Controlling Oligarchs
won't be easy

 

Primary grades determine what a student does well,
their Special Intelligence.

Secondary has four twelve-week year-round
four hour double sessions.

Students take overloads, school activities,
do community work, sleep late ...

Teachers use off sessions:
compensation overloads or sabbaticals banking,
student activity management overloads ...

Lower building costs, assistance from active young adults ...
 

5. Determine
Education Plan

Step One

Local Community
Choose and Prioritize Possible Goals based on Appropriate Axiom and Postulates

 

Local Community Choose, Prioritize Possible Goals

1. Improve HS Graduation Rate
2. Maximize Use of Free Internet Learning Materials

3. Publicly Accountable Charter Schools: community cost/benefits analysis
4. Maximize College Acceptance  
5. Track Students by Ability
6. Community or State Determines Curriculum Content
7
. A Student's Curriculum Based on What They Do Well

8. Guided by Bloom's Taxonomy

9. Choose between Pedagogy or Andragogy classroom theories

 

1Students go to their reading computer and read Jack and Jill went and then they choose an option like ball game, dance, rodeo, movie... Once students begin the computer takes over and adjusts the reading level and direction for each student based on what they want to read, how fast they read with how well they read based on some

end of assignment easy questions. This is not an IQ test. There is no hurry as the only complete failure is those that can't read well enough to begin the process which indicates the need for special personal attention. A 7th grade reading level at H.S. graduation

is OK if desire means continued reading. The key is when hey decide they want more they are prepared. Thanks!
